    We got these chicks at a local farm store and thought we figured out they were sexlinks.. Now the wife thinks they are RIR..

    Can someone identify?

    They could be Production Reds. The black ones look like BSLs to me.

    Thanks.

    Hmmm.. I wasn't really shooting or asking about the black ones because we "thought" they were Plymouth Rocks lol

    I guess we just aren't sure what we have at all [​IMG]

    I agree, the red birds will be something basically solid Red--likely a production red bird.

    the dark ones look like black sex links.

    Honestly, no matter which of those they are, they're going to be wonderful backyard birds and great layers of nice brown eggs.
